We made pancakes for a special snack and completed Pumpkin Science activities. We used the sheet from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten Blog!
Here is our window display. We painted pumpkin lunch bags and then the paper plate pumpkins were an idea from Pinterest.
We completed our Color Fun Days with Rainbow Day! We completed the following activities for the Rainbow Hair poem. The kids LOVED their own Rainbow Hair!
You can't see it from this picture, but I also gave them typed color words that they had to glue onto the matching color prior to puting the hat together.
The poem is glued onto the back. We also used Deanna's FREE Rainbow Hair emergent reader (not pictured)!

We also spent time particiapting in the O.R.E.O Project by Projects By Jen! Each child made a prediction of how many OREO cookies that they could stack before their tower tumbles. Then they have two chances to see how high they can stack them. Students were introduced to tally marks too. They had a great time! Our class average was 17 cookies.
Another activity we did was a picture sort. They had to determine which pictures began with F, T, L and P:
I used the book, Words Their Way, for the pictures and letters.
Finally, we also had the local fire department visit the school. We made fire hats and learned about fire safety/prevention!
Well, that is it for now! Next week is all about APPLES!
